The speakup reflector is a place for anyone to hang out and discuss just about any aspect of anything. It is a good place to come when you are trying to get GNU/Linux installed with speakup, compile Linux kernels for the first time, get ALSA drivers installed and working or just about anything else. Participants commonly get into discussions on the meaning of life or even play online games.
